Karidi Beach is one of my favourite beaches in Halkidiki (Sithonia part). It is known for its light blue color of the sea and the beautiful beach. The beach is divided into two parts. One bay has fine white sand and the other has rocks. So,it is appropriate for those who want the swim in a sea that looks like a natural swimming pool but also for those who want to unravel the seabed and discover its hidden treasures.
For those of you with children the Karidi Beach is also ideal. The bay with the white sand is very shallow for several meters and toddlers can play for endless hours. For those also that might feel hungry or want to drink something cool there is a permanent canteen that offers its services. So do not worry if your water finished or if you would like a cold coffee (frappe etc) or if your sandwiches finish. The canteen has everything needed to satisfy your needs.
HOW TO GET TO KARIDI BEACH
The beach is located on the second ‘leg’ of Chalkidiki called Sithonia. You will find it in the southern part of Vourvourou but not so easy. Vourvourou is a well known tourist area of Sithonia with many hotels, apartments and everything a tourist wants. If you intend to visit Karidi beach after you arrive first in Thessaloniki, you can go there also by bus. You can take the bus from from the Bus Station of Halkidiki in Thessaloniki also known as Halkidiki Ktel.
